To all of the Fricke Clan.

My gg grandfather was Johann "John" Deidrich Fricke, b. abt 1829 in Hanover, Germany, d. 8 Feb 1897 at Lee Station, La. He lived in New Orleans, La. He married 31 May 1852 to Theresia Schuntzmeyed (aka Snitzmeyed). She was born Abt 1829 in Prussia, Germany, d. 3 Dec 1901, Lee Station, La.

I would love to find their parents in Germany. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it so much.
Their Children were:
1. John Deidrich (or Deidrick) Jr.
2. John Henry
3. Herman William
4. Catherina Elizabetha (aka Caroline Elizabeth) My g grandmother.
5. Margaretha Francisca.
6. Anna Maria.
7. Michael Charles.
8. Mary

Johann and Theresia came into New Orleans around 1852. I was told that they got married on the ship coming to America by the captain and then remarried in St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans.
